Typeset Scrapbooking

Posted on

Wanting to do something a little different my New Orleans pages, I used some of the Typeset DSP to create filing pages for each of the three sections I wanted to highlight. The tabs I created from a framelit from the Chalk Talk Framelits set, folding in half to create the tab look.

New Orleans Highlights in Typeset!

I just want to make a quick disclosure here stating the first four photos for our hotel came from their website as all the photos I thought I’d taken of the hotel and our room were obviously all in my mind. I could not find ONE photo, with the exception of the coffee-bar-box that I’d taken. Very odd…

Chalk Talk Abloom Mojo!

Posted on

This Summer Vacation has been one of our best but it’s playing havoc with my schedule. Seriously, I often don’t know what day of the week it, with one day slipping into another, oops! So finally, here is my card for this week’s Mojo Monday.

Here is the sketch. This week’s sketch I thought was going to be SOOO easy but once I began assembling the card it proved much harder and took MUCH longer than I thought (and hoped)! DSP from the All Abloom DSP Stack was my spring-board.

I was determined to use the new Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set and for same strange, strange reason challenged myself to use the heat and stick powder with it for the background. It gives the right effect when combined with Dazzling Diamonds but I still need to practice with it… a LOT, lol!

The leaves are from the new Flower Fair Framelit Set. In hindsight I wish I’d used the co-ordinating stamp from the Flower Shop Stamp Set to stamp over it – next time. The butterfly was made from two Butterfly Punches – the Elegant Butterfly in Silver Foil Paper, the Bitty Butterfly in Silver Glimmer Paper.

The sentiment is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and cut with the co-ordinating Chalk Talk Framelit. I stamped it with Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto  Shimmery White Cardstock which you can just see coming through the pink. Noice! The Silver 5/8″ Satin Ribbon was doubled over then adhered JUST under the cardstock, then tied off with some 1/8″ Silver Ribbon. All the ends of the ribbon have double-sided tape on it assuring they stay in place.

For You Blended Bloom!

Posted on

The new Blended Bloom Stamp is proving to be a favorite of mine when I want to dress-up a plain base color. A splash of Smoky Grey Classic Ink provides the perfect accompaniment for the stamp.

Stamp onto Pink Pirouette Cardstock, add a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels and you’re onto a winner for certain. I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I seem to be rather partial to the good old Chalk Talk Stamp Set and Framelits!

Tag It quickly on a Friday!

Posted on

Yesterday was spent down in the Studio. It was lovely to be down there once again but even with an early start, it took almost six hours before I found my groove once again. Then again, it didn’t help that previously I’d been working on our Christmas cards which were here, there and everywhere on my desk. Initially I chose not to move them for “expediency” sake. What a mistake!

Alas, today wasn’t much better as I left the Studio in a complete upheaval last night but unlike yesterday, today I have begun the slow process of returning everything to where it once belong. Or in some instances I’ve even had to begin creating new homes so I can find them next time. I can see many large wooden stamp cases being on my next order so I can begin keeping everything together!

As a matter of fact, I’m still plodding along with the clean-up but in the process was able to create a quick card as I wanted to feel as if I’d accomplished something at least. What do you think of this for something quick and easy?

Tag It Celebrate - JIF

The Tag It Stamp Set is fabulous for more than one reason. Besides the fact most of the tags co-ordinate with the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies and that these tags cover so many occasion, there’s also the fact that $3 from this stamp set is donated to Ronald McDonald house. Love it!

Today I had fun with the CELEBRATE tag, coloring most everything in a different color with Stampin’ Markers. The Washi Tape added even more color and then for a smidge of bling I mist the Whisper White cardstock with Smooch Spritz and also covered a line of Sticky Strip with the Orange Glitter from the Holiday Catalog. I wanted to prove to myself I could use this for something other than Halloween!

CARD RECIPE
Cardstock: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
